Reviews for Bill Memorial Foundation

Rating: 5 stars  

This non-profit is run by dedicated loving people that give their all to the organization. They rescue animals that have been abandoned or have been marked for euthanasia. I have followed this organization for a long time and I have been inspired by the love and care they show to each and every animal in their care. The service they provide to the community is an invaluable asset.

There are many different dog rescue organizations, but my experience with Bill foundation is above and beyond exceptional. Not only did they match me with a wonderful dog, but I have observed them first hand and seen how extremely dedicated to their cause, moving forward with great care to rescue extremely wonderful animals and match them with caring homes. The people involved have always been caring, friendly, and serious about their mission. The level of attention they give to all areas of their mission is inspiring. I have been to many of their events, and the passion and dedication is clear -- they keep the focus where it belongs, which is their mission to place dogs into loving homes. (I also must add that the foster homes that they provide prior to placing the dogs are exceptional and very impressive)

We have been the proud owners of "Gordon"since October, 2009. Gordon is an adult male that was certainly bound for death at the Los Angeles Shelter he was rescued from. Thanks to the volunteers of Bill Foundation, we were able to adopt a very balanced, well-trained dog, and he has been a wonderful addition to our family. Thank you Bill Foundation, for going out to shelters and picking up "unwantables a.k.a. adult dogs" as so many people just want puppies. Gordon is an amazingly sweet and fun dog, it would be tragic to see other dogs like him put to sleep in shelters.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

receiving a wonderful dog that became an instant member of our family.
